Are you looking to learn about finance concepts or be entertained? The books about shenanigans are among my favs (e.g. the big short, too big to fail, smartest guys in the room). Entertaining and horrifying at the same time. They’d be funny if they weren’t true.

I'm looking for interesting stories or anecdotes. I've read all the intelligent investor type books. I read monkey business and enjoyed that, but I'm looking for something that covers the broader market rather than just IB. Thanks for the recs.

I know my references are a bit dated but....kids lol. I read a good one about Coca Cola in South America a while back but I can’t remember the name I’m just now getting around to Silk Road and Dark Net. Barbarians at the gate is still on my list too. If you find any more recent good ones let us know!
